Originally supplied by Reliance Mercedes, Chingford, to a lady doctor, living in a smart suburb of London, it spent most of it's life garaged in the seventeen years she owned it, hence it's incredible condition.
This is also the rare and desirable Sport variant of the W202 range, which makes it a much more involving vehicle to drive, but without ruining the ride quality. Unlike the sport variants of Mercedes saloons today, the conservative ethos of Mercedes in the 1990's, meant they didn't go over the top when doing this, so there's no in your face spoilers or stripes; the changes they made were both subtle, but highly effective, and the car feels much more taught and "planted" on the road.
Finished in 572 Ruby red with fantastic Sport Check interior, give it that subtle Sporting feel. I have to say my second ever Mercedes was W202 C230K, back in the late 90's, which had the same interior, which I admit I bought in spite of the interior, not because of it. However, I now think, age has been very kind to the check design, and now I actually think it really makes the car feel a bit special; you might say I would say that as I'm selling it, but it's a view shared by everyone who've already seen it.
As you'd expect, this car is an absolute dream to drive, and still feels (and smells) almost like a new vehicle. The durable M111 1.8 Litre 16v power plant is both economical and surprisingly lively, driving the rear wheels through the super smooth 5-speed auto transmission also makes for very relaxed and frugal motorway cruising too. Everything works exactly as it should, and as you'd quite rightly expect with a vehicle of this quality and nature, and it comes with all it's original books, and keys and tools, all of which are in the same immaculate condition as the car itself.
So, If you're looking for a superb, and quite rare example of the W202 C-Class, I don't think you'll find many as good as this one. I've actually noticed as decent examples of the W201 190 become ever rarer, the W202 is gaining quite a following, so perhaps can be seen as a good investment. The W202 C-Class still feel like a "proper" Mercedes, but is refined enough to use everyday, and are the model is probably the last Mercedes that's simple enough to remain reliable, as they age.
THE MTSV DIFFERENCE
Unlike some, I don’t just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected, and I work very hard to ensure that when these cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such, in my 11th year of doing this, I have many repeat customers and a steady stream new customers coming along that have been recommended via word of mouth…this is the ultimate accolade for anyone in business.
Any other questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or on 07976 280738. I'm a firstly and foremostly a true Mercedes enthusiast of many, many years, and a Mercedes Club Member, so it's a pleasure to meet and speak to like-minded people.
Finally, I'm situated in Keighley (pronounced keith-ley), West Yorkshire (Postal Code Area BD21) which is approximately 11 miles from Skipton, and 20 miles West of Leeds.
